It depends what you’re looking for in a wireless system. There are several options:
1. Our DSC 1616 is a hybrid system, which means that it can work with wireless devices; such as door contacts, motion detectors, etc.
2. We also provide wireless alarm monitoring, which is available for an additional monthly fee.
3. Lastly, we have the SMART+ HOME® system that is provides total wireless freedom; e.g., wireless monitoring and wireless security devices.
Once the signals are received by the central monitoring station, it takes the dispatchers about 13 seconds to first contact you, rule out any false alarms, and then dispatch the proper emergency service. However, if you use a panic button to send out an emergency signal, then the police will be dispatched immediately without call verification.
You can arm your system remotely with any of our SMART+ HOME® systems. With our SMART+ HOME®, you have total control to interact with your home security from anywhere, including smart phones, phones with web browsers, tablets, or Internet-accessible computers.
Geo-Fencing is a location-based technology that creates a virtual fence around a specified location. Certain actions can be triggered when a person enters or leaves the fenced area.
By using Geo-Fencing with home security, Smith Monitoring® has changed the way you control your home. With SMART+ HOME® you can use Geo-Fencing to control multiple appliances around your home based on your location. You can setup your system to change to a certain temperature when you leave the specified perimeter and return to a certain temperature when you enter the specified perimeter.

Initially we provided our services in several states including Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Louisiana, Georgia and California. However in 2012, we stopped accepting new customers from all states except Texas. The concentration of our services in Texas has allowed us to truly set the bar for customer service in the home security industry. Customers that have signed up with us in other states continue to receive the home security service they were promised.
